Some bloatwares should be removable without needing root. The biggest bloat (MIUI :lol: ) can be removed after unlocking bootloader and/or rooting the phone. Check XDA or Miui forum for the detailed procedure.

No luck yet.
May be because its a new model or may be no one interested in low end mobile.
Should have bought popular mobile like Redmi Note 4... :(

How ?
Tried to search at XDA but no result.
Will Rooting void warranty for this phone ?

Rooting voids warranty but if it changes the splash screen while the phone boots up or the service center people somehow detects it but so far of all of the phones I've rooted everyone of them :D and all of them were under 10k budget phones.

Other than this with a rooted phone some apps like banking and aadhar based ones may not work though this can be fixed by xposed but that's another thing.

You can try Kingroot ( roots most cheap phones ) but be advised it may steal data ( not sure through ), throw up some notifications sometime about downloading this app and another, play service may throw up some warning sometimes but so far my usage with this app never had any adverse effect. Another thing is you may be unable to remove this even after a factory reset.

But rooting gives you great control over your phone. It's like taking the Red pill in Matrix ;)

Where?

I do not want to block internet access on certain apps like Youtube, browser and google play.
Settings > Apps > Any app you want to block from using internet > Data Usage > Set these as follows:
Background Data: Off
Disable all mobile data access: On
Disable all Wi-Fi data access: On

This option only disable Mobile internet but I use wifi and It will allow to use internet If app is running.
